  • I'm the Mac user here and I still use Mac OS, with no plans to upgrade to Mac OS X. WHAT'S WITH YOU PEOPLE?

    Maybe after I read Mac OS X: The Missing Manual [oreilly.com] I'll be won over. ;-)
    • :) I still mainly boot into OS9 too as the applications I have haven't reached critical mass on the OSX side yet. Classic mode sucks worse than Wine. Almost all of the OS X people I know are recent converts to the platform with little or no investment in OS9 apps. It's a time consuming PITA to migrate as well.

        Yeah, that's really the main thing. It is a lot easier to migrate from *nix to Mac OS X than it is to migrate from Mac OS 9, in many cases.

        Although it'd almost be tolerable if it weren't for two things: the very big performance hit (on my G3 boxes, anyway), and those damned paned file dialogs. I hate those things. The Mac OS 8/9 Navigation Services are so much better, I really can't stand it. :) It takes forever to drill down into deep directories, keyboard shortcuts mostly don't work at all, or work inanely.
